Health Care facilities have a unique requirement for power quality, reliability and energy efficiency. Organizations such as University of Texas Medical Center, M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center, Florida Hospital and many more put their trust in Powersmiths technologies and professional support systems.
Powersmiths’ products help healthcare facilities to:
- Reduce electricity waste
- Lower operating costs
- Improve power quality and reliability
- Earn LEED points
- Reduce power demand lowering greenhouse gas emissions
- Contribute to improving the overall health of their communities
The number of computers and other digital devices in hospitals is growing exponentially. Unlike the mechanical equipment of the past, new digital equipment sets up harmonic distortions in the electrical current that affect the reliability and lifespan of expensive electronic equipment. When patient outcomes are at stake, power quality is essential. Powersmiths pioneered the development of harmonic correcting transformers to ensure that your electrical distribution delivers quality corrected power to meet your critical power requirements. We also provide innovative products to protect your system from lightning, transients and temporary over-voltages that can cause equipment failure.
Improving efficiency to reduce operating costs
Though often neglected, electrical power distribution systems can be a source of significant energy savings. Increasing the efficiency of your electrical transformers reduces electricity consumption immediately with no need to modify behaviors. Over their 25 to 40 year lifespan, Powersmiths’ transformers can save medical facilities millions of dollars in reduced electricity waste.
On-going conservation efforts
As electricity costs continue to climb, energy management becomes a priority. Powersmiths energy monitoring and management systems are available to help you measure, monitor and manage electricity use. Our energy management decision support tools are invaluable in helping you to reduce costs by: identifying high use activities that may be shifted to off-peak hours; and monitoring and evaluating conservation measures.
Providing leadership to your community
Coal powered electrical plants emit particulate matter and give off greenhouse gases that adversely impact the health of your community. By reducing electricity consumption your facility can play a role in improving community health and slowing climate change.
